JFreeChart in Eclipse RCP & SWT

To use JFreeChart in a Eclipse RCP project or simply embed in an SWT composite, you have two applicable choises:
  1.  org.jfree.experimental.chart.swt.ChartComposite from JFreeChart SWT experimental project, which I can not say works seamless.
  2. SWT_AWT bridge, hmm, not perfect but plays its role better.
  • Create a container composite with SWT.EMBEDED style (required for SWT_AWT).
    Composite container = new Composite(parent, SWT.EMBEDDED) 
  • Create new AWT Frame using container.
    java.awt.Frame chartFrame = SWT_AWT.new_Frame(container)
  • Create a JFreeChart ChartPanel and append on chartFrame. (This should be done in AWT Event Thread)
    SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
         public void run() {

              ChartPanel chartPanel = new ChartPanel(chart, true);
